Re: Death in the (plant) family


Hi Auralie

I share your enjoyment of Clivias. Somebody who used to be on this list sent me a couple of divisions of hers. Does anybody remember Linda Spadafora? Really nice lady. I wonder what happened to her! I'm afraid the two she gave me are too small to divide or I would be happy to give you a slice. Clivias are pretty expensive. They must take forever to grow into nice size plants.

Auralie, what a terrible shame - like losing an old friend. I'm not
familiar with Clivias so have no particular info to offer, but I know
several on the list may have something to impart. I hope you'll be able to
obtain another good-sized start.

My Clivia has died!  I bought this plant as a 1-inch seedling at the
Boston
Flower Show in about 1985. It has done extremely well for me, and has
bloomed most years, and has been divided several times. A couple of
years ago it burst its heavy ceramic pot, and was again divided into
several plants, which I gave away. It bloomed quite handsomely this
summer, and had started several new side plants. Then, when I brought
it in this fall it began to have brown tips on the leaves. The other day
it looked off kilter and when I touched it, the whole top growth fell off.
It seems to have rotted from the roots up. What happened? The only
thing I can think of is that I didn't bring it in soon enough. We were
away
in the fall and one night temps got down to near freezing. I thought that
since it was near the house in a protected spot, it would be all right. I
can't think of any other reason for this to happen. It has been a strong,
healthy plant for a long time. I'm very sad. Logee's has a very small
Clivia for about $10.00, but I doubt that it would reach blooming size
in my lifetime. Maybe someone that I gave a division to in the past
will share with me.
